john carter and old-new jazz

i haven't been exposed to the recordings of john carter, a fort worth expat who made his name as that rarity -- a free jazz clarinetist -- in the '80s, but after reading this overview, it sounds like i might oughtta. dude also sticks up for jazz from the years 1973-1990 and links to a screed on that topic by the bad plus' ethan iverson. as it recently occurred to me that there are big holes in my jazz listening between '81 (when i got married the first time) and '93 (when i got divorced), i'll be perusing these lists at leisure when insomnia strikes.
